Meet the Flintstones (also worded as (Meet) the Flintstones) is the iconic theme song featured in the third through sixth seasons of the original series, The Flintstones.

Premise

In the opening version, Fred comes home from work at the Slate Rock and Gravel Company, happily and excitedly saying his most iconic catchphrase, "Yabba-Dabba-Doo!", slides on a dinosaur's back and tail with his feet and drives his car on the way to his home. Then he goes to the drive-in theater with Wilma, Dino and Baby Puss (in the third season), Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm, Barney, and Betty (in the fourth through sixth seasons).

In the closing version with the ending credits, after they watch a movie in the drive-in theater, Fred and the whole gang goes to the Bronto Burgers and Ribs Drive-in Restaurant and a waitress serves them some huge Brontosaurus ribs, causing his car to tilt. When Fred tries to put Baby Puss outside for the night after Wilma, Pebbles and Dino are in the house, the saber-toothed cat shuts the door on him. After that, Fred furiously and angrily pounds on the front door so many times, shouting, "WILMA!"

Lyrics

Fred Flintstone: Yabba-Dabba-Doo!

The Randy Van Horne Singers:
Flintstones, meet the Flintstones
There the modern stone age family
From the town of Bedrock
There a page right out of history

Let's ride with the family down the street
Through the courtesy of Fred's two feet
When you're with the Flintstones
Have a yabba-dabba-doo time, a dabba-doo time
We'll have a gay old time

The Randy Van Horne Singers:
Flintstones, meet the Flintstones
There the modern stone age family
From the town of Bedrock
There a page right out of history

Someday, maybe Fred will win the fight
Then the cat will stay out for the night
When you're with the Flintstones
Have a yabba-dabba-doo time, a dabba-doo time
We'll have a gay old time

We'll have a gay old time

Fred Flintstone: WILMA!
